200hr Mindful Yoga Teacher Training Graduates March 2014

"Kathy is a great teacher, very knowledgeable. She taught me what is the yoga for "normal" people. Thanks to her course I am able today to teach any type of a student, young, old, healthy and fit or with a poor posture and in bad shape....

Mindfulness MBSR Meditation Graduates July 2014

I can strongly recommend the MBSR Teacher Training Course by Mindful Academy. I have learned all that I hoped for by Bodhin and Kathy and even more. They are a great teaching team and both of them truly embodies the essence of mindfulness. In addition I am very grateful for the extensive paperwork that I can take home from the course, i.e. manual, participants handbook, lesson plan and scripts. It is an invaluable “toolbox”. Birgitte from Denmark July 2014

"A hands on, in depth teacher training course taught by 2 competent, dedicated and experienced teachers. Highly recommended for those seeking to teach MBSR courses.” Randall - M.D. working in a Holistic Clinic in Norway
